Telarus Partners with Defendry To Offer The Leading Active Shooter Defense Product
January 28, 2020
Defendry, an Arizona-based tech company that offers a powerful, holistic solution to the current active shooter epidemic, announced today a partnership with Telarus, the largest privately-held technology services distributor (master agent) in the U.S. Defendry is Telarus’ first active shooter defense product within their portfolio of suppliers.
“The service Defendry provides makes a difference in all of our lives. My children have been in two lockdown situations at their school in the last year, and I would feel much better if their school had this technology,” said Scott Forbush, SVP of Global Sales at Telarus. “Our sales partners can make a huge difference in their communities by offering this service to their customers.”
Defendry offers a cutting-edge, AI-powered active shooter defense product to automatically detect, deter, and report an active shooter holding a gun in just seconds, providing a tactical advantage to first responders, expediting incident resolution, and can even lock a shooter out before entering.
“Today marks a key milestone within the channel community for something that has never before been available to partners. While it’s truly unfortunate we had to create such a product, I’m very excited to make a positive impact on the active shooter epidemic with the Telarus partnership, which validates why Telarus is the fastest-growing, most forward-thinking master agency in the industry. Telarus’s network of partners will now be able to offer a whole new level of value to their customers, helping save lives with Defendry’s Active Shooter Defense,” said Skyler Stewart Senior Vice President of Channel Sales.
Defendry is on a mission to help save lives from the current active shooter epidemic by providing powerful and affordable active shooter defense products. Defendry integrates with existing surveillance cameras to automatically detect visible threats 24/7, including guns, masks, and intruders. If a gun is detected, access-controlled doors are locked automatically to prevent further entry by the culprit. A human immediately reviews detected threats, and verified alerts are immediately passed along to law enforcement, on-site security teams, and anyone else who needs to know. Pat Sullivan, Defendry’s CEO, is widely known as the co-creator of ACT!, founder of SalesLogix, and two-time winner of the Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award. Dr. Sean Huver, Defendry’s Chief Science Officer, is a former Bell Labs research scientist and veteran of numerous United States Department of Defense DARPA projects. Skyler Stewart, Defendry’s Senior VP of Channel Sales, is a well-respected veteran of global channel partner sales who launched multiple companies in the Cloud Communications space.
